We will regularly update facebook and twitter with our latest book recommendations and reviews. If you'd like to stay up to date with these please like or follow us. We are always looking for regular book reviewers of all ages and tastes. If you'd like to write us a review or direct us to a blog you already write please let us know.
We sell and accept National Book Tokens and we're planning to offer our own vouchers in time for Christmas 2015 in £5, £10 and £20.
We also offer various other book related treats either as pressies for yourself or the people you love. Ideas currently under development are:
Book hamper - a selection of books from a specific genre or mixed genres presented in a hamper and chosen especially for the recipient by Wardle & Jones based on what you've told us about them. The number of books and price can be tailored to your needs.
Book bundle - a book a month for 6 or 12 months from a specific genre or mixed genres chosen especially for the recipient by Wardle & Jones based on what you've told us about them. Each book will be gift wrapped and sent by post direct to you or the people you love. The price can be tailored to your needs.
Book baby showers - have your baby shower at Wardle & Jones and we can provide a special celebration cake, give you and your friends proper time to choose your little one's first books and even offer a glass or two of bubbly – non-alcoholic for mum to be of course! Baby showers can take place after 5:30pm Mon-Sat. Alternatively, if you'd prefer a day time event just let us know and we'll see what we can arrange.
Wedding list - start your married life with a shared library – what could be more lovely? If you're like many couples when they come to get married and have pretty much all the practical things you need, but you love books, then this is just right for you. Why not have your wedding list with us at Wardle & Jones? Talk through the books you'd both like and let us have the list or discuss your preferences with us and we can help compile that list. Then your friends and family can come in and be sure they're buying, or contributing to, something you'll both love meaning you start married life with a shared library representative of you as a couple.
Birthday or Christmas list - if you love books but find people never give you quite the right one as a pressie then why not let us hold your Birthday or Christmas list. Either let us have your current list of favourites or discuss your preferences with us and we can help compile that list. Then your friends and family can come in and be sure they're buying something you really want – no more regifting or returns!
Private shopping evenings/Birthday parties - if you'd like to do your shopping specifically with you family or friends - or in peace and quiet on your own - talk to us about organising a private shopping evening. During which you can take your time selecting the perfect books from our shelves, and if they aren't there we're happy to search for and order the right ones for you to collect within the next few days.
This sort of evening would also work well as a birthday party for a book lover of any age – providing their friends are happy to give books as pressies. Please talk to us about what can be included and the price.
